This illustrates the use of the Bone Saw to produce segments, 1mm to 2mm in width, from the tooth of a small rodent. The tooth saw may also be used for this work.

Cross-section through a rat skull cut using the bone saw. Like the sagital section in the next example both hard and soft tissue are preserved intact.

The saw will cut through calcified bone embedded in resins. Even manually, sections down to 1mm and below can be cut.

This example is a ball joint of a Musk Ox. It shows the joint cut from the bone, and then sectioned into two pieces.
